Epirus and Thessaly Sights

Fodor's Review

Visit a restored 14th-century monastery, about a 30-minute walk into the valley (with the trip back up about an hour). Two images of the Pantocrator (Godhead), one in each dome—perhaps duplicated to give the segregated women their own view—stare down on the congregation. You can also see the monks' cells. The guided tour in English explains the 18th-century frescoes created in Epirote style.
